Inigo and Fezzik went and found Westley in the pit of despair and took him to Miracle Max. Max gave them a pill that would bring Westley back to life so he could save Buttercup from marrying Prince Humperdinck.
By: Morgan Alexander Period 1
The enemies in The Princess Bride are Vizzini, Fezzik, Inigo Montoya, The Albino, Count Tyrone Rugen (six fingered man), and Prince Humperdinck. Fezzik and Inigo Montoya later turn into the "good guys" and help Westley save Buttercup from getting married to Humperdink.
This is the first time Westley ran into some setbacks. When he was following Vizzini, Fezzik, and Inigo who had Buttercup, they stopped by a big cliff and climbed up it. Westley followed them up a rope. Once he got to the top, Inigo was waiting to kill him, while Fezzik and Vizzini ran off with Buttercup. Westley knocked out Inigo while Fezzik was waiting for Westley. Then Westley knocked out Fezzik and poisoned Vizzini. He took Buttercup.

Westley saved Buttercup with the help of Inigo and Fezzik from getting married to Humperdinck. As a reward, Buttercup and Westley lived happily ever after.
The Mentor/ Meeting with the Mentor
There was not a mentor or meeting with the mentor. Westley just left to go on the Dread Pirate Roberts ship and stayed with him then heard about buttercup and came to save her.
There was not a trickster at all in this movie.
This is when the prince picks Buttercup to marry him and be the princess of the kingdom. However, Buttercup doesn't love the prince she still loves Westley.
Threshold Guardian
There wasn't a Threshold Guardian.
Refusal of the Call
There wasn't a refusal of the call because Westley loved Buttercup and just wanted her to be safe.
The Road Back
The road back went together with the reward because the movie just ended with them riding their horses into the sunset. I assume they got married and lived happily ever after. This is a movie that lets you decide what happens at the end however, it is pretty obvious.
Return with Elixir
There wasn't a return with elixir.
Director: Rob Reiner
